Welcome to the World Languages Department

The fundamental goal of the  World Languages program is to enable students to communicate effectively in the target language. Teachers emphasize speaking and vocabulary development, especially in the beginning levels, rather than the study of grammar in isolation. As students progress from introductory to advanced courses, grammar skills are taught in context as tools for effective communication.

 The department strives to equip students with the skills to express communicative functions that include providing and obtaining information, expressing personal feelings, socializing and persuading. Applying speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, students must use the target language effectively in a variety of real-life situations. In addition to the practical application of communication in the language, students will obtain an understanding of cultural perspectives and practices in countries where French and Spanish are spoken.

 The Nyack School District is one of the many school districts in New York which participates in the Foreign Language Association of Chairpersons and Supervisors (FLACS) World Language Examination Consortium. In June all Level 1 students will take the FLACS Checkpoint A or equivalent and all Level III students will take the Checkpoint B exam (Formerly a NYSED-created Second Language Proficiency Exam for level 1 World Language students and Regents Exams in Latin and German for grade 10 students/level 3 language). The mandates from the state for Regents and Advanced Regents diplomas have remained the same but the test is now administered locally trough FLACS.
